Oyster Cards

If you intend to be a regular traveller on London Transport, We suggest you obtain an Oyster card, this is cheaper and easier to use, visit www.tfl.gov.uk/oyster for more details. I've even arranged for my card to be topped up automatically when the balance falls below a set level, so you don't even have to worry about how much money you have in it!

There are card readers in each Underground station and on the buses. These are a round attachment to the automatic and manual gates - you simply place the card (in its wallet) over the reader and hear a suitable beep whilst the gate opens for you. You must, however, remember to "swipe" your card at your destination as well, otherwise you'll be charged the maximum fare.

Buying Your Ticket

Whilst there are normally two kinds of ticket machines - quick ticket and ordinary self service - these are inaccessible to blind/vision impaired people, so we suggest you go to the sales windows. Here, you could not only buy a ticket for your journey, but could get an Oyster card, as mentioned above!

Ticket Sales Windows

The ticket sales windows are in the concourse on the left-hand side as you enter from the Piccadilly South entrances, or on your right as you enter from the Piccadilly North or Stratton Street entrance. You queue from the south side of the concourse then turn left (180 degrees) the sales windows are then on your right. Continue beyond the windows then turn left towards the gate line.
